Around the Interwebs: Colin Kaepernick Moving Up Draft Boards

That defender is using the tackling method I like to call the Slip and Slide. Some people call it the Crocodile Mile (if you're in the South).

Ex-NFL Scout and rogue-opinion enthusiast Dave Razzano has now heard from several "key" sources that Nevada QB Colin Kaepernick is inching into the first round discussion. As Rotoworld notes, both Doug Farrar and the well respected Russ Lande also are high on Kaepernick. Lande has him as his 2nd rated QB in this class - high praise for a relatively deep class this year at the position.

So does this mean that Seahawks fans should sit up and start paying attention? Well..., yes. While I doubt he'll go in the first round he is definitely an intriguing prospect. He's a freak athlete with ideal size at the position. His arm isn't ideal though so he is a bit of a project guy.

I watched the Boise State game where he led Nevada to a huge upset win over a highly ranked team and came out impressed with the guy. He was still relatively obscure back then, but as the offseason has dragged on he's gone from a probably 3-5th round pick (where I would say take him for sure) to now a possible 1st rounder. That, my friends, is the nature of the NFL Draft beast.

I'll try and put together a better profile of Kaepernick if these rumors heat up but since we all know that QB is the biggest need position for the Hawks we should start to seriously consider whether he's on the Hawks' radar. Right now that doesn't seem to be the case but a lot of times teams will feign interest in other guys so they can land who they want. We'll see.
